In 2014, the Gilchrist Foundation began an exciting new “micro-grant” grant opportunity for qualifying tax-exempt organizations that promote the Arts, wildlife or conservation. The program offers one-time grants up to $5,000.

Grant requests may be submitted at any time through the stream-lined application below. Micro-Grants will be either accepted or denied within 30 days. This grant allows non-profit groups to receive funding for smaller projects on a one-time basis. Criteria for award will include the opportunity to bring theater, music, art, green spaces, parks, wildlife and conservation efforts into the lives of Siouxland residents.

For more information about the Micro-Grant Project, contact Marilyn Hagberg at Security National Bank (712) 277-6727 or
